    2016 Olympic Games PDF Schedule And Betting Options

    Despite high-profile struggles to host the games, the 2016 Rio Olympics promise to provide sports fans with the same elite athletics witnessed every four years. The competitive landscape has shifted dramatically after the announcement that many of the Russian Olympic team members have been barred from competition due to doping concerns. As a result, nations such as Germany and Australia look to benefit by rising to a potential third place finish, while the United States and China may experience a boost in medal counts similar to when the Soviet Union and other communist countries boycotted the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.

    Sports fans have been wagering on Olympic events since ancient Greece. During the mid-1990s, online sportsbooks and gambling sites started to pop up on the internet, breaking the monopoly that casinos and bookies held over the industry. This opened up new opportunities for wagering fans, allowing them to enjoy increased access to competitive odds and services. The following table includes top sportsbooks in the industry, some of which will provide a bonus on your Olympic bets.

      Similar to the modern Olympics, which has evolved greatly since rebooting in 1896, technology has vastly changed the way we interact with the Olympics. In addition to being able to stream live feeds of events and send instant messages to athletes, fans can log into their favourite sportsbook instead of visiting a bookie or calling in a bet to a casino. This “on-demand” style enabled by digital media greatly improves wagering and audience experience.

      In addition to choosing from a terrific selection of sportsbooks, fans of betting on the Olympics can look forward to a wide variety of athletics and wagering propositions to consider. The most popular wagering events tend to be marquee sports and athletics such as the 100 meter sprint and the Olympics basketball tournament. In both of these cases, overwhelming favourites, such as Usain Bolt and the U.S. Olympic basketball team, dominate the wagering landscape. Some bettors look to beat the odds by predicting an upset, such as Justin Gatlin or Spain winning the gold medal.

      You also have the option of betting on nations in an attempt to predict who will finish with the most medals overall, or the team that will finish with the highest gold count. In cases where a huge favourite is likely to blow away the field, some sportsbooks allow you to bet on the rest of the field, minus the favourites, to see who will finish fastest among the runners-up. In order to get the best odds, it doesn’t hurt to browse different sportsbooks to see which types of bets they facilitate.
